SCAD Sensorium

Tools are needed to inform designers of the sensorial, economic, and sustainable implications of materials. In the course of ten weeks, our team developed the information architecture, designed the GUI, and prototyped the physical and digital interfaces for a material library at SCAD’s School of Design.

Given the constraint of a touchscreen table, our team designed a GUI which would serve not only as a search platform but also as a demonstration showpiece for the space. Considerations included multiple user scenarios, serendipitous discovery of related materials, data visualization for material information, creation of material boards, and links to physical swatches.
